Protecting Waukesha County's Natural Resourses since 1978
WEAL is proud to host:
Dr. David Garman
Founding Dean, School of Freshwater Sciences UW-Milwaukee
November 14, 7 PM
Retzer Nature Center Planetarium
S14W28167 Madison St., Waukesha
Cities and towns the world over are running out of water. Some are in arid, developing nations. Others are in developed nations that see large quantities of rainfall. And yet the way in which communities manage their water resources largely determines long-term fate.
In his presentation, Dr. David E.J. Garman, dean of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee School of Freshwater Sciences and past president of the International Water Association, will present a series of case studies surveying policy, management and operational strategies that have been implemented to manage water in cities facing shortages around the world. Some of these have been good – and some have exacerbated their problems.
There is no right or wrong. But successful management strategies will be shown to share key factors regarding governance, leadership and administrative processes. And in the end, public acceptance and attitudes to water as a precious resource are critical in formulating positive changes to water use.
WEAL cordially invites you to attend this presentation which is free of charge.
